Latest On Bills RB LeSean McCoy

The ex-girlfriend of Bills running back LeSean McCoy told police she believed McCoy “set her up” for the home invasion that left her bloodied and beaten this week, ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak writes. Police have yet to identify a suspect, but Delicia Cordon described the attacker as a black male who was wearing a mask. This person is wanted for armed robbery, aggravated assault with a firearm, residential burglary without force, and aggravated battery. 

The suspect in question is definitely not McCoy, who was in a different state at the time of the assault. But after the person demanded “specific items of jewelry” that Cordon received from McCoy, she believes that he had a hand in the incident.

Cordon’s attorneys say their client was beaten in the head with a firearm and also suffered wrist injuries as the suspect tried to remove her jewelry by force. Later, photos of Cordon posted on social media showed the brutal aftermath of the disturbing event.

Shortly after the allegations surfaced, McCoy issued a statement denying the “totally baseless and offensive claims” made against him. He has also hired high-profile defense attorney Don Samuel to represent him in the matter.

Police were also called to McCoy’s home in July of last year and April of this year for domestic disputes between McCoy and Cordon, Rodak writes. Last July, McCoy wanted Cordon evicted, citing a fear that she would make “false accusations” about him after they broke up. McCoy also told police that Cordon refused to return expensive jewelry that was loaned to him by jewelers.

The NFL is aware of the accusations against McCoy and is conducting an investigation of its own. While things play out, the league reserves the right to place McCoy on the commissioner’s exempt list. If the NFL takes that step, McCoy would be temporarily barred from participating in either practice or games.

In addition to McCoy, the Bills also have running backs Chris IvoryTravaris Cadet, Taiwan Jones, Marcus Murphy, and Keith Ford under contract. If McCoy is taken out of the equation, it stands to reason that the Bills could consider free agents such as DeMarco Murray and Adrian Peterson to fill the void.

If McCoy is not fully cleared of the allegations between now and September, it seems unlikely that he will be in uniform for Week 1. And, if the allegations prove to be true, then McCoy has almost certainly played his final down in the NFL.

    You may want to remember the basis of our judicial system! Innocent until PROVEN guilty. He will and should be playing week 1.

    We can’t deny that the girlfriend might be setting him up

      He will be playing football in your backyard if he isn’t cleared by September. The NFL doesn’t need charges at all to suspend him. The accusation is enough. The NFL is not a government agency.

      Can’t deny his girlfriend set him up? Nobody believes he did it, but it’s very possible his buddies pulled a Tonya Harding on his behalf. That he associates with people like this girl and her attackers tells you everything you need to know about Shady. He’s still a punk.

    Funny that he’s been in eviction court with her for a year and she’s still there. In fact was supposed to be in court that day but her lawyer had a ‘family emergency ‘ and couldn’t make it, and she was sleeping cause she just got back from a vacation in England? Plus she won’t return jewelry that was loaned to her by a jewelry store. I’m sure they are going after Shady to pay for it or return it by now. Sounds like she doesn’t want to give up the high life she’s been living. And why not, cause every good looking women deserves to be pampered, spoiled and never told they can’t do whatever they want, whenever they want. SMH!

    Like all but 3 people on Earth, I have no idea what happened in this incident.

    But, I do know that she is a squatter and has already exhibited questionable character.
